Before you freak out, no, this isn’t who you think it is.
William Shatner’s lawyers have issued a cease and desist to developers of Shatter, Sidhe Interactive.
It comes due to the developer apparently using Shatner’s likeness in the game as well as using the song “Mr. Tambourine Man” by Bob Dylan as well as the rights to the Captain Kirk of Star Trek.
Studio head for Sidhe, Mario Wynands, replied back saying: “The GameConsole “report” you reference is what is commonly referred to on the internet as a “joke”. The article is a parody of our game, and has no basis in reality in that it does not in any way reflect our intentions for further development of the Shatter IP or relate to any official statement we have made relating to the game.
“We have the upmost respect for Mr William Shatner and the licensing process, and if we had any intent of using rights related to either Mr Shatner, Star Trek, or Tambourine Man (which we do not) we would do so using the appropriate channels.”
All we’re saying is… woops.

Shatter has sold 30,000 digitally over on PSN within just one week, and because of this, Sidhe is workibg on a playable demo.
“We will be making a demo available down the line for those gamers on the fence,” managing director Mario Wynands told Gamasutra. “Shatter is not exclusive to PSN, bBut Sony is offering the combination of good royalties, strong technology, and a well defined process for getting content to market.”
The team already has “working builds” of Shatter for PC and XBLA, due to the cross-platform functionality of Sony’s free PhyreEngine.
Wynands says the team is “reviewing the situation to see whether it makes sense to continue investing in those versions,” but other ports are highly likely.
